Diabetic supplies not covered
Q: I am looking to find health insurance for my boyfriend who is a diabetic. I wanted to get an estimate of how much his diabetic supplies would be with the basic health insurance, including test strips, insulin, and needles.
A: Supplemental insurance including Basic Health Insurance do not cover these common diabetic supplies, so these will not be of any help. See the article titled "Health Insurance for Diabetics" at MedSave.com for other resources but keep in mind that the health insurance plans that cover diabetic supplies are not available online. See the High Risk Health Insurance Plans page for links to your state's plan.
